Page 1 of 2

At the moment, there are plenty of indicators market participants can use to analyze publicly traded companies. A couple of the most under-the-radar are hedge fund and insider trading sentiment. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite investment managers can trounce their index-focused peers by a very impressive amount (see just how much).

Equally as key, optimistic insider trading sentiment is a second way to look at the investments you’re interested in. Just as you’d expect, there are a variety of incentives for an insider to sell shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly. Plenty of academic studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this tactic if “monkeys” know what to do (learn more here).
